Can be a bit quicker, but I wait for as many Sat's as possible, if I'm on 15 on copter 11 on controller, I go.Actually it doesn't quite take 5 minutes for me @Mrgs1, more like 3ish @Steve Carr but there's a quicker workaround I've seen on YouTube which I've yet to try.
Makes good sense what you say @h-elsner , I never thought of that!
And yes i guess it gives more time for more gps satellite links to be established.
I'm relieved to know I'm not alone and even more the explanations above, thanks guys, gotta work on my patience
The time it takes for me to bind the cam is 2-4 minutes (EU) in worst case and it's perfect. Why? Then I can't rush up in the air before there is enough sats!
Aha. Thought so. Its only happened on donut sofar, weird.
